KarlBox - Product of the Month

Karl Lagerfeld x Faber-Castell

An art box with an innovative twist, this is the most unique art set you’ll be able to get your hands on. With both Karl’s brand and the Faber-Castell brand equally shining through this product, you get the perfect mixture of art and design for you to create with.

This is not just an art set; this Limited Edition KARLBOX is filled with 2500 supplies. The certificate of authenticity and the serial number plate just adds that bit of extra ‘cool.’ To turn a creative idea into reality, you need the products to do so. Karl knows that more than most of us, creating designs for his self-named brand and for Chanel. Haute Couture starts off with a simple drawing and expands into a runway garment. What could you make come to life using these Faber-Castell supplies?

Without designers such as Karl Lagerfeld we wouldn’t be aware of the power of creation, figures like him have created a huge impact on the art world and have inspired people to design, paint and illustrate. Just looking at the images of his box makes me want to draw!

Blue pencils

The KARLBOX is perfectly organised into draws of particular colours, making it easy to quickly grab the shade to finalise your piece. The box contains 350 drawing instruments, making it extremely valuable. Don’t be too scared to sharpen a pencil, this set is meant to be used, although it is worth £2500. That might seem steep, however it is great value for money. Think about how many products you’ll be receiving, you won’t have to buy a single pencil or pen for the foreseeable future. 

Items also available individually.

Pink pencils

To me the KARLBOX is flawless, every drawer and each PITT pen placement has been thought about. It makes me think about how one of Karl’s garments is put together, the time, thought and effort that goes into art creation is something special.

The KARLBOX is exceptional, to add this to your art studio would be incredible. With these tools at hand, let the creation begin…

An Artists' Guide to Charcoal
An Artists' Guide to Charcoal

by Ellie Jakeman January 06, 2022 0 min read

Compressed charcoal was developed in the 20th century to strengthen the natural structural weakness of Willow and Vine charcoal. To create compressed charcoal or charcoal pencils natural gum or wax binder is added to powdered charcoal. This makes the charcoal stronger to draw with and produce less dust. Many grades of this compressed charcoal can be found in stick forms or in the form of charcoal pencils.
